A survey by the National Commission for Women attempted to assess the extent and kind of harassment that women face at their workplace, both in the organised and the unorganised sectors, last year. The survey, which spanned five states—Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, UP and Maharashtra—had a respondent base of 1,211 women. Of them, 564 said they faced problems at work:
  •  68 per cent reported mental harassment.
  •  26 per cent said they had been physically harassed.
  •  33 per cent felt they suffered gender discrimination.

    (In some cases there were multiple responses. All percentages have been rounded off to the last decimal.)
